Comment: The UFC is reportedly unwilling to make the only available superfight in MMA today in Ngannou against Jon Jones as the fighters are expecting a big payday. The UFC cannot have that, so instead, we’re getting Derrick Lewis and Ciryl Gane for a interim championship so they can promote UFC 265 as containing a heavyweight title fight. Ngannou will likely end up fighting the winner before the end of 2021 for a meager payday compared to what you expect a heavyweight champion to be earning.
